Funen's Art Museum (Danish: Fyns Kunstmuseum), formerly The Museum of Funen's Abbey and Museum Civitatis Othiniensis, founded in 1885, is an art museum in Odense, Denmark.

The museum, one of Denmark's oldest art museums, is located in a Classical, stately building on Jernbanegade. The building has a characteristic temple gable and a decorated frieze with scenes from Denmark's history and Norse mythology.

The museum was founded as a mini version of Nationalgalleriets (later the Statens Museum for Kunst) and holds a wide range of works by important Danish artists. The older section contains amongst other things principal works by Jens Juel, Dankvart Dreyer, P.S. Krøyer and H. A. Brendekilde. There are also works by Harald Giersing, Vilhelm Lundstrøm, Olaf Rude og Vilhelm Bjerke Petersen. The museum specializes particularly in concrete and Constructivist art.

Funen's Art Museum is a part of the Odense City Museums. [source]
